At E3 2015, producer Johan Andersson confirmed that the game would be pushed back from its original release window. This is an attempt to resolve several issues encountered with the game.

On March 15, 2016, it was announced that the game would be released on June 6, 2016, which is the 72nd anniversary of the Normandy landings.
